First you will have to export from sketchup in the Collada form (DAE)
And then you import it into Blender. You then select File and export your model as a 3DS file. Make sure you delete the little man and the automatic cube genergated by Blender.
You can then simply import it into 3D Canvas.
This is so far the easiest way I know of.
P.S, this is how I get a building from Google Sketchup and then into 3D Canvas/Crafter.

I don't know why they won't make it where you can export directly from sketchup to Railworks, but I doubt they ever will.
If you tried to build buildings in crafter it would be much harder and take longer to learn how to build a decent model.
And about the last question, I think a export function could be created, "if" someone knew how. If they could create something to make the shape file igs they might be able to get it through, that is, might.
